I used to make greeting cards with rubber stamps, inks, embossing powders and all the other accessories and tools that you stampers out there are familiar with. Friends would always make such wonderful cards but I always felt mine were uninspired. So for a time, I am going to leave the rubber stamps behind and start making some cards out of fabric scraps.
Here is the card I made for all my friends who have a January birthday. It's all temporary, scotch taped together with snippets of fabric. The background is scrapbooking paper. Now that it's photographed, it will go into the garbage, except for the face, which will be used for a future dolly.
All that I have left to do is to upload the pictures for developing. When I get the prints, I will crop them and attach them to some bright cardstock, like purple maybe. Oh and I guess I'll make some colourful matching envelopes as well.
